Be aware that there are two areas where tech professionals vehemently disagree:
-RAID formats. Though nobody recommends RAID 0, there is a lot of debate about other RAID options.
-Drive types. Some think SSD’s are stupid for RAIDs (Read/write lifespan, less capacity, pricey). Others think use of HDDs is dinosaur thinking (moveable parts, older technology, size, noise, slower).
My decision came down to this:
-HDD’s are 4x cheaper per TB over SSD
-If I RAID up 6 HDDs w/0 RAID…speed should be good, fully saturating 10GIG network. (we’ll see)
